My aircraft drawings

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I recently discovered this website when I was looking for information for my F-104G drawings. I'd like to show you some of the other work I have done;

First up some F-16's, I am not to fond of the nose shape on this one so I might rework them in the near future.

Very nice, particularly the shading.

Can I ask where you get the original basic outline? Do you work just by eye?

They're lovely, keep them coming!

Thanks Antony!

Mostly I work from linedrawings in books like the SAM Modellers datafile series etc. For some smaller objects like bombs I sometimes use photographs but for larger things like entire aircraft lenses etc. tend to distort the shapes a bit.

Some assorted F-104's

Phantoms! Bear in mind these are some of my earliest work and will get reworked soon :) I hope to do some RAF(G) and RN tooms then too! First up, yanks!

The reason I want to rework the Phantom's is two-fold really. The Phantoms were the first planes I made a serious effort of to create profile drawings. Before I made textures as a hobby for games like Il-2, Operation Flashpoint and the Microsoft Flight simulator series. A lot of the skills needed to make textures for game engines that lack self shading come in handy for profile drawings. How ever the Photoshop files for these are set up really inefficiently plus the shapes are not 100% on the navy machines. I recently bought a lot of books and I hope to be able to start reworking them in the coming months. The Phantom is the planes I love best, with the Starfighter a close second. I built around 30 1:48 Phantom models so far :shocked: When I start reworking them I hope to add some RAF and RN phantoms too because those had some of the coolest paintscheme's, so far I've only done one RAF machine for a calender (please excuse inaccuracies!)

One of my favorite paintschemes! :)

Some German F-4F's, I drew a whole lot more but don't seem to have them online at the moment.

A quick question, do you airbrush your drawings?

Nope! I do them all in Photoshop :) Makes it much easier to do subvariants and different paintschemes.

Ah! Photoshop, I just wondered if they were airbrushed, my ex brother-in-law did side views of cars and he used to airbrush them.

That must be insanely difficult, sometimes on TV they have these car restoration shows and they have this guy Chip Foose who is the head of the studio. For each car he does a design sketch on paper to show what he wants for the car and to be able to show it to the client. The drawings alone are a artform, some wonderfull drawings that he creates with stuff like giant whiteboard markers etc. It's like watching Bob Ross but with cars! ;)
